11/16/19 Gleneagle Sertoma Warriors! Crawford House is in need of many items in service to its many homeless veterans. A list of the needed items was put on the tables at our last meeting. Hopefully, you had a chance to make some notes as to what you could contribute. I am attaching that list here and would like to encourage you to include Crawford House in your after Thanksgiving shopping. If you want to drop your items off at Mary Obenauf's house (14540 Latrobe Drive), Joe & Gloria or Kay will take them to Crawford House. Let's set a deadline for getting the items to Mary's house to be Monday, December 2, 2019.
Christmas Unlimited's toy collection drive is November 11 - December 14. The toys needed are:
Traditional board games (Monopoly, Chess, Battleship, etc)
Sporting goods (especially balls of all kinds)
Building sets (Legos, Lincoln Logs, Mega Blocks)
Play kitchen items (utensils and play food)
Dolls and action figures
Personal care items for older children (only new)
Electronic items (MP3 players, cameras, games)
Bicycles with 16″ and 20″ wheels, scooters, wagons
Arts & craft items, science, and collection kit
They should not be wrapped.
They should be new not used.
Of course money works, too. They can use the cash to buy toys at reduced prices.
There was some discussion of locating collection boxes in stores and such. We will hear more about this from Kay Welch and the Service Committee at Wednesday's meeting.
Salvation Army Bell Ringing - there is a sign up sheet that will be passed around again with available time slots. We are INSIDE Bass Pro Shop. We will not be able to actually ring the bells, but will be using Jim Taylor's famous "Ding Dong" signs. As you flash the signs back and forth, be sure to ask people if the signs are 'too loud'. It makes them connect with you and usually brings a smile or two. Learned that one from Joe Gray.
We know that seems like a lot, but we are a busy and active group with service as our number one priority.
Proud to be a Sertoman!

Focus Items 12/6/19 OK guys, This is Mean Mary comin' at you! Take a look at this schedule that Kay spent so much time formulating. You will notice that Kay is working 4 out of the 5 days that we are ringing the bells. We voted to commit to this project and only 13 members out of 53 members are signed up to help. We can do better than this. Even 1 hour of your time will help, so PLEASE call Kay and let her know if you can give her some relief!
Fellow Sertoma Members Our Salvation Bell Ringing will be next week December 9-13 from 11:00-3:00 at the Bass Pro Shop Main Entrance. The kettle and apron will be at the Service Desk for the beginning 11:00 shift. The money collected in the kettle needs to be returned to the Service Desk at the end of the 3:00 shift. Salvation Army will pick up the money that day and leave a new kettle for the next day. Here is the schedule for next week: Monday 9th 11:00-1:00 Jim Taylor, Kay Welch, + Terry Galloway 12:00-2:00 1:00-3:00 Kay Welch Tuesday 10th 11:00-1:00 Eric Emde, Bill Bristol 1:00-3:00 Eric Emde, Bill George Wednesday 11th 11:00-3:00 Mary Obenauf, Vicki Wynn, Amanda Sutherland , Harvey Lecato Thursday 12th 11:00-1:00 Eric Emde, Kay Welch 1:00-3:00 Bill King, Kay Welch, Rae Berg 2:00-3:00 Friday 13th :-) 11:00- 1:00 Duane Gritzmaker, Terry Galloway 11:00-1:00 1:00-3:00 Mark Yoder, Kay Welch
